Chalk Waco 2022
May 14 - 15, 2022
Partner with a local artist to have your business uniquely represented as a street mural or in the wall mural gallery along Austin Avenue in the heart of Downtown Waco. Thanks to support from the City of Waco, the chalk art murals will remain on the street for the following week and wall murals up to a year! This event is for all, from locals to visitors in town for Baylor's graduation to enjoy.
We take pride in offering a range of sponsorship packages to meet the goals of your business from marketing, strengthening brand identity, community engagement, corporate hospitality, to customer pipelines. Whichever level you choose, we can guarantee that we will work with you to make sure this event is a fun and rewarding experience.
Last year, over 12,000 people from near and far attended this event and described it as a positive, well-run experience — and it was even nominated by locals as a top community event in the Wacoan's 2021 Best of Waco survey.

The 10' x 10' street murals will be on display for at least a week, and your business name and photo will be highlighted as a mural supporter on Creative Waco's website. The artwork will be shared on social media by event attendees, and your business may use the image for promotion beyond this event.

The wall mural gallery will be an exciting area for sponsors and VIPs. Top artists will create large custom wall murals at least 10' x 10' representing your businesses around the 7th Street Pedestrian Plaza. These social-media friendly murals will be photographed hundreds to potentially thousands of times, represent a great marketing buy, and be an opportunity to support the arts! The wall mural gallery will be on display to the public for at least four months. Last year's artwork lasted the entire year! A local artist of your choosing or one you are partnered with will create a large custom wall mural representing your business.
